Wagonhound interchange and rest area reopen on I-80

Good news for road-weary travelers. The Wagonhound Road interchange, Exit 267, on Interstate 80 has reopened, as has the Wagonhound rest area. The interchange and rest area have been closed since June due to bridge work there. Crews wrapped up the construction in the last few days. The bridge replacement is part of a larger project of rehabbing several bridges along the I-80 corridor between Laramie and Rawlins. The opening of the Wagonhound rest area comes at a good time. The popular rest stop often fills to capacity with travelers who hunker down there during southern Wyoming’s winter storms that frequently force closures of the interstate.
